Nature and bug enthusiasts, gardeners and glass collectors will be snatching up this coin featuring a Murano glass monarch caterpillar. Caterpillars are an essential part of the natural world. Without them, the fluttering beauty of butterflies would not be; and without the milkweed plant, there would be no monarchs. They are the only plants monarch larvae feed upon. Your coin’s design is punctuated by a vivid Murano glass monarch caterpillar that was handcrafted by a master glassmaker in Murano, Italy; its yellow, black, and white stripes are the tell-tale sign it is a monarch larva. The glass monarch caterpillar is poised on the leaf of a swamp milkweed plant designed by Canadian artist Maurice Gervais that has been selectively coloured to showcase the plant’s long leaves and its clusters of pink flowers to best effect. Composition: 99.99% pure silver. Weight (g): 31.39. Artist: Maurice Gervais (reverse), Susanna Blunt (obverse). Black clamshell with black beauty box.
